          Can someone tell me if the beds in the Double Salon Suite are queen beds or full sized beds? The website says queen beds but when I made the reservation they said the hotel only has full beds. I called twice and both times were told only full sized beds even though the website and confirmation says queen.

          We were in the Tower and had a walk-in shower. The older building may have tubs. Call or email them. It is an amazing place to stay.
